Panasonic Viera Scratches help

I bought our 50" Viera a few years ago when the Bears went to the superbowl, nice new TV, great price, etc.
Well, I have two boys and mysteriously, scratches have been appearing since we bought the TV. Not just lil scratches, I mean catch a nail scratches that look like they tried drawing on the screen with something that should NEVER be near a screen in the 1st place.

Anyway, is there a replacement panel I can buy from Panasonic?
That and a good supplier of chicken wire?

The only supplier for parts is the Panasonic service rep and their parts distributors. To change the front panel transparent window is a fairly big job. In most models, the compete screen has to be removed.

You will find that the replacement window is fairly expensive. The labour would also be expensive because of the time involved.

What you should do is get it streight with your children to not touch the screen. Also, if they have allowance, you should cut if back by a fair amount for a long time to compensate for the damage.

No power, no blinking lights for my panasonic th-42px60u TV. I bought my TV new about 7 years ago. I have had no problems with it until today. I was watching a program I heard the click I normally...

the power supply inside the tv, is what it sounds like to me. I fixed a 50 plasma about a year ago that all it needed was a 20 cent capacitor. but you might find the power supply for yours on ebay for kit 20 bucks or a used board about 50. this is not a for-sure fix, but if you can fix it saves you about $300+ just be careful when working on it you dont crack the screen.
the one I fixed was a first generation plasma flat screen tv and it price was about 10 grand. I love it it still works good and has a nice picture.I have the most expensive TV on the block ! it likes it's power though 500 watts .
So in summery, the two things I have found over the years in my "look what I found honey" tv projects is that the power supply has failed or the screen light driver needs to be replaced. in the last 30 years I have only purchased 2 new TV's and fixed and gave away to friends about a 100. and that was before I had internet and parts had to be hunted down by catalogs and phone,
SO go ahead and try fixing it, if you cant fix it Give it to your local TV repair shop for parts, he might help you out in the future if you need parts, to fix another stray you bring home ?

Can you tell me what a Panasonic Viera Model TH-42PD25 would be worth today? I'm thinking of buying one second hand and aren't sure what I should pay. Thanks!


Second hand price is difficult to say, probably about $500. If the unit is in good shape it does not go down too much.
New RRP is over $1000, offers however start at about US$600 (about £400 in UK). Probably you can find a little cheper in Ebay.

Here a link: Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ80U

I suggest not buying a second hand plasma. Plasma TVs have a couple of weakness points, and often break down after few years usage. If you buy a second hand you do not have any info on its usage, and you may find yourself in need of changing a sustain board within the year.

Any antenna with a 75 Ohm impedance RF coax in or out, or a 50 year old set of rabbit ears with tin foil and a 300 - 75 Ohm transformer (adapter) will work. There are many new ones to chose from and they will go right in line with the cable from the wall (basic) or your converter box, or you can splice it in with an impedance matching splitter. The powered ones with active filters are nice. You can find them in the RECYCLE bins up and down the street this week

Tv making clicking noise while I am watching

Hello everyone,

I bought the model TH-50PX60U June of 2007. I've been hearing the very annoying clicking noise as well.

Since the TV has a one year warranty, I just called Panasonic and they've scheduled a tech to come over and take a look at it three days from now.

I will publish the results on the same page.
